My heart and head are not in alignment. My head says forgive myself. My heart says no I don’t deserve it. I play over and over in my head all of the mistakes I’ve made as a mother, a wife, a daughter and friend and find it impossible to forgive myself.
I’m not exactly sure why because I forgive easily others. Sometimes it might take awhile but I eventually do. I still cry when I remember some of the things I’ve said. I know God forgives me, I just need the key to forgiving myself.

Good morning Dede,
Have you read “Self-Compassion” by Dr. Kristin Neff
“Daring Greatly” and “Rising Strong” by Brene Brown
I think all 3 would bring you some inner peace.
Consider this…You were and are doing the best you can.
Trust your journey.

I’ve read Brene Brown. I think Dr Neff is at UT Austin.
